Environmentalism to Save Our Ass - 2016/08/04
It's quite hilarious to see all these people who call themselves 'environmentalists' (even though they just got done buying 20 new solar lights to light up their front lawn which they otherwise wouldn't have bought, even though there's a street light directly in front of their house which lights up the lawn just fine) who believe that the ideology of environmentalism is to save the planet. This is something completely ridiculous. The planet won't 'die' just because some species on it start destroying the very environment we depend on. The planet, if anything, will do better off once we all die out for creating an environment that we cannot live in. So the fact is that environmentalism is not about saving the earth, or even the environment (seeing that environments and nature in general have an amazing ability at adapting to our own stupidity), but rather it is to save our own asses from our own extinction.

Now, is this a bad thing? No. I personally hope to continue the human race, not destroy it, but I'm not going to bullshit myself into thinking this is some greater good of more than just me bullshit. Environmentalism does not benefit anything other than the human race. 'Nature' does not give a shit if we survive or not, and it certainly doesn't care if a few million species (out of the trillions that exist) have to go extinct for us to finally die off as a species. Even if we were to cause the nuclear winter, there would still continue to be life on Earth (just not human life), and even if there was no life, who cares? It's a small planet in a universe infinitely bigger than it (heck, there's probably a much more intelligent species somewhere else in the universe, far away from us, that deserves to live more than we do).

Therefore, stop saying that you're doing these things to save the planet, stop lying to others and yourself, and get a grip on reality for once. The neither the universe, nor nature, nor the planet, give a flying fuck about the human race, we die out, they continue as if nothing happened, just a few hundred thousand years compared to next to an eternity which the universe will be around. Just accept your insignificance and say that it's for the human race and not this 'save the planet' bullshit.
